So, we've only got 10 more days of school left until we reach our required 170 days. Don't tell my kiddos that. I've told them they have 15 more days. Why? I don't know. I guess because I just want to be sure that we've done enough?! Who knows? But that's what they think and they are okay with it - so I'm going with that. We started our school year in the middle of July and I think I am going to do that again next year. I have really enjoyed having the freedom to take days off in the fall and spring when the weather is great. By July, my kids are getting tired of going to the pool everyday and it's so hot, you literally can not handle being outside for long. I've already hit them with the news that we will be doing math and reading over the summer. Also, okay with that. (As long as it is only 1 lesson a day - mom!) Okay, moving on to this week's weekly wrap up. Don't forget to head over to Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers to see what everybody else has been up to this week.
Let's see . . . We wrapped up our science book. Speaking of - what science curriculum do you use and love? I haven't really dug ours for this year. Gotta find something new for next year. Anyway, our last unit was on space. We talked about all things space related. When we got to the stars and constellations, we made our own . . .
using those good ole star stickers and some black construction paper. Next week (since we have finished our science book, we are going to talk about volcanoes. You know with that whole Iceland thing there should be plenty of great images on the internet and we have a kit to build our own!)
What else?. . . We finished up school on Wednesday and I dropped the boys off at my friend Deborah's to play with their friends, Davis and Clark. They had such a great time! The next day, we decided the right thing to do was write some thank you notes using these super cute cards the boys got for Christmas from my dad and step mom.
Aren't they cute?! Anyway . . . The boys the did great and at one point my youngest came to ask me a question and I said, "Hold on honey, I am helping D with his school work." D said, (while writing his thankyou note) "Hey, I amd not doing school." You gotta love those kinda moments!
It was a fairly busy week when you add in baseball games and practices. And last but not least, we ended the week with my littlest man graduating from kindergarten.
More on that to come later! I hope you all had a great week!
